Tattoo "Yuo"

When you're buying a tattoo, you're supposed to sign off on the design before it actually gets inked. And when you get words tattooed on your body, you want them to be spelled correctly, right? In Chicago this weekend, people are getting tattoos of a deliberately misspelled version of the phrase "Chi-Town." For the rest of their lives, they will have to explain to others why they have "Chi-Tonw" permanently written on their skin. Tattoo artist Sam Hacker Guest tells Weekend America guest host Tess Vigeland why he is inking this tattoo for free — and why people want it.
